here's the '72 baja project i picked up last month (January)

Trust me, she's not as solid as she looks, but a good starting point for a baja........always wanted a baja

Next one (ain't even done with this one and planning another LOL) will be a street bug.........hopefully i can find a mid to late 60's bug when the time comes

Looks good. What's your time frame for completion of the project?

Here's a link to a 1965 Baja from out other site SuperBeetles.com http://www.superbeetles.com/galleries/baja.htm

for one of my next bugs i'll probably make it a baja, but not for my first project

actually, i don't have a set time frame for it.........sooner would be better, but in all actuallity i'm leaning more towards next summer for a completion date.

That is, unless i can scrounge some free time to work on her...........free time is in VERY short supply these days

Did anyone see the '61 Baja on MTV's "Pimp My Ride"?

Geez, did you have to remind me?

You'll find Krissy's car listed as a `69 all over the place; I believe it's either a late `60 or an early `61.
